Honor Flight

Dr. Fred Sick ('74)
Fred Sick's third trip to the nation's Capitol was different. "The thing that really surprised me when we got to D.C. was the number of military people when we got off the airplane," Sick said. A Vietnam War veteran, Sick was part of the Midwest Honor Flight: Mission 11 in August. The tour included stops at the Vietnam War Memorial, the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Solider, and the Korean and World War II Memorials. "The tour guides were so kind and helpful; it's because of one I was able to find my cousin's name," Sick said. Sick's cousin, Frederick Holst, was killed in Vietnam and his name is on the Vietnam Memorial.
